Completed in 2015, the 230-square-meter House PS is clad in a bold and curvaceous facade that contrasts a stark white base with a top-heavy second level clad in both black-painted surfaces and diagonal strips of unpainted larch wood. “It’s definitely not a typical prefabricated house out of [a] catalogue,” wrote the architects. “We tried to develop a residence that meets the needs of modern users while having functional floor plans and contemporary elegant exterior all appropriately settled into its landscape.”

The ground floor comprises three slightly curved volumes assembled together in a Y-shaped volume. Large windows pour natural light into the contemporary wood-lined interior, which features an open-plan kitchen, living room, and dining area on the ground floor. A staircase leads to the second floor where the bedrooms are located. In contrast to the flat-topped ground-floor volumes, the upper floor is topped with a gable roof to echo the local vernacular architecture.
